Your Electric Motor Recycling Guide

How Can Electric Motor Recycling Benefit You?

Electric motors are very tempting for people to take apart because of the allure of the copper wire on the inside, but it is also very time-consuming. For inexperienced motor owners, they may not know that the copper wire inside is not #1 wire, but instead it is #2 copper wire, so they most likely won’t be getting the top price for it. To make things easier and to save time, those in the St. Louis area should opt for an electric motor recycling center where they can drive in, drop it off, get paid and go!

Electric motor recycling in St. Louis is now easier than ever before. Scrap Mart offers convenience not only in getting rid of materials, but in getting paid. With their new drive-through and drop off metal recycling center it is easier than ever to bring in the scrap metal recyclables from one’s home, business or organization. The material is sorted and weighed, and then cash payments are made, right then and there.

Whether they know it or not, most homeowners have some sort of electric motor in their house. They are found in anything from microwaves, hand tools, air conditioners, and more. There most likely are motors in the garage, such as the starters in lawnmowers or snowblowers. Those who want to recycle their motors can help themselves by cutting off any cords, as well as taking off any plastic parts connected to the motor.  To get the most money possible on their motors, the sellers must disconnect them from the mounting base, or anything else that is attached.  They should focus on selling just the motor itself and keep the ratio of steel to copper intact when the consumer buys it for recycling. At Scrap Mart Metals, we offer top dollar for your recycled electric motors. Don’t delay, for more information, contact us today!
